The Future of RCEP: an FPRI Briefing

| Asia Program

About the Event

With news of the newly signed Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), the landscape of Geoeconomics in Asia has changed dramatically. China, South Korea, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and 10 other Southeast Asian countries have come together to form the largest free trade area in the world. What are the implications for the U.S. and for the countries involved? How does this differ from the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) that was in the works a few years ago? How does it affect global trade going forward? Joining us to answer these questions and yours will be FPRI's Jacques deLisle and the Wilson Center's Shihoko Goto. deLisle is director of the Asia Program at the Foreign Policy Research Institute and a professor of Law and Political Science at the University of Pennsylvania. Goto is Deputy Director for Geoeonomics and Senior Northeast Asia Associate at the Woodrow Wilson Center's Asia Program.
